Home Visits Service

We can provide care for a vast array of pets in your own home from cats, dogs & puppy care, to hamsters, rabbits, tortoise, bearded dragons, chickens and donkeys and horses. Whether you’re out working, disabled or going away on holiday, or are here on holiday we at Pet Assist Animal Care are here to help.  Be it one-off jobs or regular jobs, home visits which you require, caravan visits or boarding at our premises for your small furry or feathered friends. We offer your pets a lot of love at all times (Please note we cannot board cats or dogs).

We do not offer ‘live in’ as such, but we can stay over the odd night or couple of nights or weekend. You can mix and match petsitting, pop-in visits, and overnight sleepover to make up a 24 hour period.  Please note we do not live in.  

 Or you can ring me to discuss and I will try to work out a package to suit.

During our first year of business, we were members of Pet Sitters Alliance who fully checked us out and insured us.  We are now fully insured through an alternative comprehensive insurance company (copies of our policy can be seen as requested).

We only advertise through some site platforms such as Yell.com, by signs on our car and at our premises, on our Facebook page and through our website.  We rarely need to advertise in newspapers as we usually work on recommendations from our valued customers.  Please see our Face book page for more reviews by our customers and our review page on this website located above on the menu.

We offer a free, no-obligation assessment before care commences to ensure we meet the needs of your pet, this is when we collect keys, fill in paperwork and collect deposits or payments. As you can see from the price list we offer value for money and our prices are very competitive. Also, discounts may be available depending on the number of pets and the duration booked.

  • When requiring care for a dog or cat for long periods like a day and night, or weekend we recommend combining pop-in visits or hourly visits with an overnight stay if required.  This works well when a dog is comfortable with being left for a maximum period of 4 hours alone, but not suitable for dogs who need someone with them for 24 hours a day.
